of this amazing continent.......

the bounty of its amazing wildlife.......

Here are some beautiful squares from our members, to provide you with a little inspiration........

Squares inspired by African animal  or fabric colours/designs

or a flag or two of the many nations that make up Africa.
If you're feeling really energetic, perhaps you will achieve a whole blanket's worth of squares.  :))
and remember, it's not too late to include toys for the children
And if you're still not sure where to begin, these tunes will get those needles, hooks and looms working, I'm sure.....
Please sit with me under Chris's umbrella as we make some LOVE-LY squares to CELEBRATE AFRICA!
Lots of squares, blankets, hand warmers, hats and toys.
Our love and care in every stitch.
Volume...... so there are always enough items for every needy child.
Every child receiving our knitted and crocheted items will know that they are valued and loved.

Recognisably a mongoose, Bev - here's one that came to breakfast with us on holiday last year. Great work again!

Never seen one before. Bev, yours matches the description in wikipedia: a large pointed head, small ears, a long tail, short limbs. It is PERFECT!! Cute, I might add. Thanks , Bev for such a fine work. Well done.

Bev, your little mongoose is soooo cute.  A tiny friend for a little one :) ... xo

Made me think of a squirrel actually. I'm going to read that link. Such smooth even work Bev shows me what even tension means. 

A friendly lion

He's terrific, Lesley. You and I seem to be on the same wavelength as I'm currently working on some applique squares.

Aww Lesley....he is indeed a friendly lion......I LOVE his cute ears and mane.....and his face is adorable.  :))

Thank you for sharing the pic from your holidays....I thought they were only to be found 'in the willd', far away from humans....lol.

Yes, they are fun, aren't they, Patricia - I have lots more lined up for some of the year's themes, although the downside for me is making the plain squares to sew them onto - I have a low boredom threshold :)) !

Bev, this was in a nature reserve (our favourite 'holiday resort'), where the 'wild' animals are less nervous of humans - we particularly enjoy the 'wild' tortoises!

Totally agree about the plain squares - and I'm also not keen on the extra sewing involved - but yes, making the actual shapes is fun! And I could quite fancy a holiday with wild tortoises!

Super cute lion. Thanks Lesley. 

I love your beautiful friendly lion very much. It doen´t look diffucult. Is it your pattern, Lesley?

Thank you, Karla - no, it isn't difficult.  It's a pattern I bought on Ravelry - I don't usually buy patterns, but I couldn't resist this one!
